Art Deco in the Back Bay

This tour explores the Art Deco design found in Boston's Back Bay.

We'll walk through the first four blocks of the Back Bay to highlight examples of Art Deco design, from residential and commercial properties to institutional landmarks. The tour will include the second John Hancock building and New England Power. 

In the walk, we will talk about the evolving character of the Back Bay and the development of new Art Deco buildings, as well as the incorporation of Deco design into existing structures.
